This is the second most-asked question I get, which is paraphrased as “I have a book idea or a manuscript and I want to meet with a publisher, what do we do in the first meeting?” OR “How should I approach the first meeting.”
I’ll give you my approach to first meetings, but you really NEED to interview your publisher. It is an intimate relationship and your books is a big deal so you want to make sure your publisher is bought in, cares about your project and is committed to finishing strong.
If you have any questions, ask away! I’m here to help.
